Get Cruising

Every Dreamt of Setting Sail?

Why not make your Dreams come true!

You only live once!

Sailing Fremantle

Do you dream of remote anchorages, traveling by sailboat, and getting away from it all?

Cruising via sailboat is the ultimate experience of self-sufficiency. Taking off and being able to live comfortably while exploring remote and amazing places.

We have just returned from cruising up and down the West Australian Coast over the last 7 months on our 32 foot Ketch Charade. We anchored on beautiful beaches, caught fresh fish off the boat, watched the sunset over the ocean night after night and live self sufficiently and fulfilled our Dreams.

In pursuing our dream to go cruising we have learnt a lot along the way. There are many things we wished we had know before hand that would have made our journey easier.

That is why we put together ‘ Get Cruising’ to share a lot of the things to help make your cruising dreams come true.

Whether you want to weekend cruise over to Rottnest, or Dream of taking off and sailing around the world. This course will give you a great kick-start to making it happen.
